Hi Dmitri,

The problem come from the file dialog.

Go to Setup/Misc/Appareance and active native file dialog support option.

Run again the export to remote... tool and look at the file dialog is the
desktop one instead of the Qt base version.

With the desktop file dialog, you will be able to nativage to the Network
(at least with the KDE version, i don't know the Gnome one).

Why 2 files dialog and why the Qt base by default : because under few linux
(Ubuntu if i remember), the desktop file dialog crashes digiKam due to
missing dependencies, or wrong packaging.

The export to remote... tool is a specific KDE based plugin, using the KIO
mechanism in the background. As I already explained in this room and in
bugzilla, the technology is not easy to port, especially for Windows
packaging. The tool is under migration to a pure Qt support only as we can
use ssh connection with Qt Network backend, which is enough for digiKam
use. KIO supports plenty of protocols but we don't need a bulldozer,
especially if this one does not work as expected everywhere).

BEst regards
